Yes, that's ASCII for you on Linux :)
Funny enough, Solaris 10 returns... not "ASCII", not "US-ASCII", not
"ANSI_X3.4-1968"..., no, it returns "646". That's the ISO number, afaik.
It also returns "ISO8859-1" instead of "ISO-8859-1". I'm not overly
concerned about returning not exactly what Linux returns right now.
